Fuewa "Chrome"**

Publish date:

Fuewa is the decidedly gritty, texture-focused alias of producer Chris Sallows, whose music is perhaps better known under the Microburst moniker. Next month, Sallows will release his debut under the Fuewa name—an EP entitled Birth Palace (artwork above)—on cassette and digital formats via Sonic Router, and today, has offered up a free download of bonus track "Chrome." Working from "a sound palette of blown out kick drums and jagged pads," according to the press release, the beat-driven tune does a fine job evoking a murky sense of sadness with its jerking, distorted rhythm underpinning evocative pitched-up vocals.
